Welcome to the Heavener School of Business and the Gator Nation!
I am excited to partner with you in forging your own unique and rewarding college experience here at UF. The international programs offered through our college provide you with remarkable opportunities to establish international connections, expand your professional experience, and prepare yourself for the global business world.
As the Director of International Programs, I oversee our signature Heavener programs and international exchange partnerships with universities in Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia. Our team also welcomes international students to campus and prepares our students to study, live and intern in another part of the world.
Originally from the small town of Warrenville, Illinois, I first became interested in international education after studying abroad in London and Wales during my sophomore year in college. I earned my bachelors in psychology from Northern Illinois University in 2004, worked two years as a program manager at the Society of Actuaries in Chicago, Illinois, and earned my Masters/Specialist of Education in counseling from the University of Florida in 2009. Since joining the International Programs team in 2007, I have traveled with students to European capital cities and led UF student interns in Beijing, China and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. In the past, I also taught English at Tsinghua University in three of their summer English programs.
My mission is to help you elevate yourself through international study. True growth occurs on the margins of one’s comfort zone, so this is the place where we operate. I look forward to helping you have an experience that will shape your personal and professional life long after college ends. Your time in college will go by quickly, so it is never too early to begin laying the foundation for future success. You can contact me by calling 352.273.0151 or by email.
